"A Scot owned bar that I frequent always sets a small pitcher of water next to a Scotch order.  I asked about this and the bartender replied that a little water helps to "open up" the taste.  So I tried the Scotch neat and then…"

"+1 on the Balvenie Doublewood - really fine scotch, even more so for the price. If you want something really special, try the Balvenie 21 year portwood is amazing. With that said - I tend to prefer speyside scotches (honey/leather/vanilla/spice)…"

"My recommendation would be Glenlivet 15 Year Old French Oak Reserve. You should be able to find it for around $50-$70 (It's $75 or so here in Canada). An excellent bottle of scotch without breaking the bank too much. Be sure to pop back in…"

"Agreed. Go out and try some first. I didn't like scotch until I tried some 18 year Caol Ila. It's extremely smoky...kinda tastes smoked. That very prominent smoky flavor somehow eased me into the scotch taste."

"Agreed , however I prefer Drambuie , it's made by lords and earls whereas bourbon is made by toothless rednecks ( not my words stolen from there poster )"

"First do you like scotch?  If not don’t blow your money. My general rule is that they need to be neat, single, legal, and preferably old enough to drink themselves. To translate that.  Drink it straight, no ice or water in the…"

"BTW, most currently used single ply roofing materials don't stand up to cigar and cigarette ashes.  You don't want to celebrate your degree with a bill for $10K to fix the roof. Buck76"

"I'd recommend Gragganmore as it is my personal favorite. That said. I'll add my voice to those who say that unless you particularly like scotch, spend your money elsewhere, like on a good Irish whiskey (Jameson).  They cost less and…"

"+1 on bourbon. Without breaking the bank, a few great ones are Buffalo Trace, Blanton's and my favorite, Woodford Reserve. If you must get Scotch, try Johnny Walker Black Label. Very smooth. Not too pricey. Another alternative is a French…"

"If you don't drink a lot of Scotch you may find that the more expensive brands are awfully smokey tasting.  Scotch is basically a whiskey which has had some ingredients dried over a peat fire, thus the smokey taste.  Spending $50 to…"
